Bhopal: Launching scathing attack on the Congress party, BSP president Mayawati has said that she will not form any alliance with Rahul Gandhi “under no circumstance”. 

Here are the main highlights: 

As the dalit leader gears up to fight the upcoming assembly elections in Madhya Pradesh and Rajasthan alone, this decision comes a s a huge blow to Congress’s efforts to build mahagathbandhan to take on BJP.

She accused the Congress of trying to "finish" the BSP, saying the grand old party is more interested in ending destroying her party than dislodging the BJP.

"In Karnataka we tied up with regional party. In Chhattisgarh too, we did the same. Now we have decided to go alone in Madhya Pradesh and Rajasthan. We may go with regional parties there but certainly with the Congress," she read out a statement.

However, she said that it is few Congress leaders who are hindering the efforts for alliance and Sonia Gandhi and Rahul Gandhi's interest to form Congress-BSP alliance are honest.

Mayawati, while addressing a press conference in Lucknow, said Congress leaders Digvijay Singh doesn’t not want the Congress-BSP allice in Madhya Pradesh. 

Mayawati had earlier announced that the BSP will tie up with Ajit Jogi's party for the Chhattisgarh Assembly polls.
